Re: Empty tank car

Hi Denny,

For some older tank cars, I have drilled a small hole in the bottom in a place that is not too noticeable, poured in enough lead bird shot to weight the car (or sand or anything else that is granular), added some glue (CA or whatever) and set it upright to let the glue dry with the 'ballast' in the center of the car.  Might need to cork up the hole.  The technique is a bit crude, but it works.
